Australia: "Journey of Falun Dafa" Photo Exhibition Held in University of Wollongong (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net, October 26, 2003)
On October 23, Falun Dafa practitioners from the University of Wollongong, Australia held a "Journey of Falun Dafa" photo exhibition on campus. Shortly before, they held a Tang dynasty fashion show and showed the movie, "Three Women" (a story about three female Australian Falun Gong practitioners). Previously, we were concerned that many practitioners were needed and we might be short of hands. When the exhibition was held, some practitioners took a day off and some made time to come, and there were plenty of practitioners attending the activity. Below are a few stories related to the activity.
1. Sending forth righteous thoughts
While we were setting up the posters, the sky was overcast and small raindrops started falling down. "Send forth righteous thoughts!" Practitioners reminded each other. The rain stopped, the cloud disappeared and the sky became clear.
2. "Can I help with anything?"
When we were setting up the posters, a female student from Mainland China came over to look at the photos. She accepted our truth-clarifying literature and started chatting with us.
Practitioner: Do you know about Falun Gong?
Student: Yes, I know all about it. Can I help with anything?
Practitioner: Great, you could give the literature to your classmates and friends.
3. A Chinese student from Wuhan
Several Chinese students looked at the posters. One of the students shouted loudly, "Look! Wuhan! This is (Teacher) teaching the Fa at Wuhan!"
4. Giving up smoking
A western student looked at the photos while smoking, and the practitioners introduced Falun Gong to him. In the end, one practitioner said that if you wanted to practice Falun Gong, you would definitely quit smoking. This student was surprised and took a flyer that listed information about the practice sites and schedule.
5. Predestined relationship
When an older teacher was chatting with a practitioner, loud rock music suddenly burst out from nearby. They could not hear each other clearly. The lady left, but she forgot to bring her purse with her. Twenty minutes later, the music stopped and the lady came back to pick up her purse. She continued her conversation with the practitioner. At that point, the peaceful Dafa music was playing. She said, "This music is so good."
6. Truth-clarifying materials
A practitioner handed some truth-clarifying materials to a middle-aged Chinese teacher. When he took the materials, he looked around and immediately put the materials in his pocket. It seemed that the pressure he felt in China is far-reaching, even overseas.
During the activity, many Chinese students accepted our pamphlets. This was not always the case before. As the overall situation has improved, more and more people have awakened to the truth.
